on the appropriations committee, that sequestration is unlivable. >> that being the defense industry. >> yes, mostly. on top of that, the next which takes spending to $967 billion almost comes exclusively out of defense. another $20 billion cut around january 15th strictly from defense budgets. so there's an appetite among the hawkish wing of the house republicans to just get rid of this. they realize that if they are going to get rid of this, they have to give in a little bit. >> weirdly, sequestration is now having the impact they believed it would to get a deal in the first place, untenable budget cuts. i think jonathan's point is really important. this is, if you're watching at home, this isn't the grand bargain. politics is the art of only the possible. the possible in this case is something very small. there is clearly no appetite for brinksmanship again. it is getting what they can get done. not getting into a bigger intractable fight that might shut down the government or cause really hard political pain on either side explaining to their base what they are getting but what they are giving u
health issues, just to name a few, as well as our defense industry. there's no longer any room in these budgets to accommodate all of these expenses just to pay what we need to pay to keep these programs going. that is why we have to say sequestration has got to go, and that is why the next nine days you'll hear more and more speak about sequestration and the fact that we must act on it. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back her time. for what purpose does the gentleman from virginia seek recognition? mr. moran: to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. moran: the safe climate caucus has brought to the house floor the reality and the ramifications of climate change. there was a recent report from three very reputable think tanks entitled "the arab spring" and "climate change." let me quote from a couple of the troubling and illuminating conclusions. a prolonged and severe drought during the winter of 2010 in china contributed to global wheat shorta

as you turn to me and say, take my breath away. martha: there we go. defense secretary chuck hagel has a former top gun as his new wingman. christine fox will take over as acting deputy defense secretary starting today. she was reportedly the inspiration for the kelly mcgillis character in top gun back in 1986. she helped the navy develop tactics for defending aircraft carriers and instructed some of the young, hot shot pilots, but she says she was never romantically involved with any of those pilots, for the record. that is very interesting. and we are having a debate here about whether orç not top gun s a good movie, is a bad movie or is a good bad movie which is its own very special category. bill: so is it a, b or c? martha: i think it's a good bad movie. you can't help yourself. if it's on, you're going to want to watch it -- bill: cheese factor was pretty high though. give me that, right? [laughter] martha: it's not often that bill calls out the cheese factor, but he did. bill: police in mexico recovering a stolen truck packed with radioactive medical equipment after a gunman s
the missile efforts. states isy the united building up system, basically a missile defense system to protect the u.s. against missile threats from both iran and north korea. a lot of our friends and allies and partners in the middle east either currently have the things and want more of the things or do not have them and want them, and that is why hagel is out there to make sure that despite the controversies of the geneva plan, and it is controversial, that our allies and partners do feel more assured. it is an open question to see whether they genuinely are assured. host: jim from california, good morning, you are on. caller: the zionist think tank that put us into iran, and we got support for israel -- guest: jim, thank you for your comment. i am a former u.s. congressional staffer. i take personal offense that i put any foreign country interest over u.s. interest. it is easy to smear someone. i am trying to engage people on the issues. i encourage you to call back at some point and ask a substantial question, but thank you for your call. host: you are asked what is the motivation for fra
defense authorization act, the bill that's passed every year in every congress for more than 50 years without fail. we do not have a farm bill. we do not have a duck fix that they have to pass basically every year for medicare. we do not have a housing bill. we do not have a transportation bill. we do not have a water bill. we do not have any of the things they pass every year when there are good congresses and bad congresses, gridlock or not. we cones have any of the normal baseline stuff done. we don't have a bill setting defense policy, we don't have the bain pentagon bill. we have that every year, even in really bad years, but we don't have that this year, because it was shut down the government year. it was shut down the government, repeal obama care year. that's what we did all year, and now we're not doing that anymore. and now nothing is done. and time is almost up. and the question is, will they get it together? can they get it together to do something that isn't repeal obama care before the end of the year? what they said they wanted to do was immigration reform. remember? e
the plastic guns. they have no sporting purpose. they're not a good self-defense weapon as they're unreliable. they're dangerous to the user. atf agents aren't holding it in their hands when they're shooting it. the only thing they're good for is assassins, murders, maniacs. people who want to avoid security. >> we haven't heard from the nra on this one yet, but this is as much an element of gun control as anything else we have talked about. >> absolutely right. this is the kind of thing that gun laws need to stop. gun laws have been used over the coursef our history to evolve when technology evolved. the 1934 machine law act came into law, and they're not used in a lot of crimes because we cracked down on those. so this is another reason why technology should be looked at in the law and these things should be made like senator schumer says, metal permanently in the gun, heavy penalty said to violate the law if you do so. this is the kind of thing terrorists go for. >> on these plastic printers and their capacity, so far, most of what they have been turning out melts or burns on the spot, but

from the white house on this subject already. they don't sound like they're playing defense on the subject anymore. the president gave a short kickoff speak about it this afternoon in washington, d.c., and i think it was telling this was the biggest applause line in the speech. >> i have always said i would work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you have good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to be sure of that. >> on thursday this week, the venue will be different, the crowd bill probably be a little younger, and the president will be forced off script undoubtedly because president obama on thursday is sitting down for a one-on-one hardball college interview with chris matthews at american university. president obama and chris matthews on thursday. the interview can only be seen here on msnbc, this thursday, 7:00 p.m. eastern. whatever you're doing thursday night, i'm giving you plenty of advance notice, you have to see this live when it happens. we'll be right back. ♪ [ male

that needs to be done. the majority leader knows that will be our position. do not see the defense authorization bill. i am hopeful the senate will move on that intelligence authorization. the senate has passed comprehensive immigration reform will. we are very disappointed on this side of the aisle that the senate bill has not been put on the floor. our bill or one of the four bills out of committee. it was supported by the republican party and the judiciary committee. they have not been brought to the floor. we believe immigration reform is a critically important action for the congress to take. we hope anyone of those options would be brought to the table. the senate has passed in a bipartisan way the end of discrimination in employment. we talk about jobs. we talk about economic opportunity. passed that bill. that is not on the agenda either. i noticed we do have an extension bill that has been specifically reference. we will get to a debate on that next week. we have a suspension bill we have been urging that is reported out of committee that passed by 350 votes. it simply say

senator cohn. he was among the republicans to override that veto. he also served as secretary of defense during clinton's second terrell. take us back to that moment, eleanor cook in the last segment set up what a historic moment that was to have a president's veto overwritten. the question of sanctions in 1986. can you take us back to the dewitt playing out in your party? because there were plenty of republicans who voted to override that veto. there were also plenty of republicans, jesse helms, orrin hatch, thad cochran that wouldn't do it. take us back and tell us what that was all about. >> well, i think there were two things at work. your guests talked about this being a vote and debate about foreign policy, about the anc being a proxy for the soviet union and certainly there was the element of communism involved and this was really a support for a communist group. but deeply underlying that was really the issue of racism and the evil of racism and the discussion about communism i think was just an overlay of that, that you look at our own history, how long it took us to try to elim
, and i was sent in to see the defense minister. also known as the pizza man because he had become wealthy and opened a chain of pizza restaurant. so we went in there. it was dark. we walked in and intelligence we have, we know where the frontline is. that we've been told from the previous day. and we walk in and we tell the minister, the instructions are from the united states you must stop and you must stop those forces right now. he said, ambassador holbrooke is giving this to the president right now. so he says stop? stop? were on the last hill overlooking -- the serbs are going crazy. the shooting their own soldiers who were running from us. you want us to stop right now? he said stock right now. so we get back in the plane and so dick has told him to stop. and we say, but look, did we know it was this man? it was this man? we were scrambling to get the intelligence information to put together. i guess dick finally got the word that it was bad. that we should go to milosevic right now and tell him to surrender. right now. we can save his unit. right now. this is the moment. so we had
the department of defense was run as efficiently as this. our deficit would be much lower. but among snap households with at least one working age nondisabled adult, more than half work. more than half work. and more than 80% work in the year before or after receiving snap. now, the legislation that the house republican leadership rammed through this congress and is now part of a negotiation on the farm bill, would cut the program by close to $40 billion. that would result in nearly four million americans losing access to snap next year, including working families with children, seniors, and veterans. nearly 170,000 veterans would lose their benefits. in addition, 210,000 children and these families would also lose free school meals. these cuts would come on top of the significant benefit reduction already experienced by all snap recipients as a result of the american recovery act moneys running out. and i would say to my colleagues that cut that went into effect on november 1 means is that the average family of four would see a reduction of about $36 per month in their snap benefit. we a

the terms of the cold war and, finally, the idea of the missile defense which has the one great advantage to us today and at the time so scared the soviets that it really led to their giving up on the race with us in the cold war. and realizing they had no chance of winning. which led to the most remarkable event of our lifetime, an event of biblical proportions, which was the collapse of the soviet union and the conquest of communism without a shot fired. and that was sort of the core of the 980s -- 1980s, that is what history will remember the '80s for. and again, as i say, i write in the introduction of the book in trying to trace my evolution from left to right that was the essence of my leaving the democratic party, because you remember a lot of young people today do not. in the 1970s there was a very strong conservative element in the democratic party. they were known as national security democrats or cold war liberals in the tradition of truman, kennedy, humphrey and scoop jackson who happened to have been my great political hero in my 20s, in my youth. in facting when scoop -- in
